All ask yourself this,most people get check nose weight before a journey(which ever method you use) but in 5yrs and being a nosey get on site I have NEVER seen anyone load up and check nose weight before a return journey.
If your payload hasn’t changed and you are disciplined enough to put payload back where it was when you left home there’s not really a need to recheck for the return trip. I do carry my noseweight gauge in case I need to check it should circumstances change. But have rechecked prior to leaving a site if say have been away for long trip and bought stuff like wine or fridge is bare.
